Yesterday was tougher with the varied weather throughout the day.  We had sun, rain, and wind and it just kept switching back and forth all afternoon.  There were some olives hatching but you had to hunt to find fish feeding in a rhythm.  Nymphing and swinging wets was the better method for most of the day.  There are some white flies on the Mainstem so swinging white fly wets may be a good option to pick up the active fish.  Today’s weather looks much better with a few rain showers moving in during the afternoon.  Wind should stay below 10 mph.  Rain totals will be negligible so the rivers should stay in fine shape.  We’re hoping for more olives this afternoon once we have the light rain.
